On the Water

Tilikum - The Killer Whale

Originally aired: Sunday, August 18, 2013

Bob McLaughlin starts the show by sharing some sad breaking news about the popular Friday Harbor restaurant, Downriggers, before giving an update on his trip to Lake Chelan. A new documentary making waves, Blackfish, focuses on the killer whale Tilikum who killed his trainer in captivity. It opened up some big debates regarding captivity and Bob discusses whether it is propaganda or in fact a serious concern. He is joined by a number of guests from both sides of the debate, including Tilikum's former trainer. Howard Garrett, Dan Cartrite, Lesley McBain and Annelise Sorg, all shared their expertise and insight on the topic. As always, Roy Dunbar is live with a sailing report, this time with an America's Cup update.
